Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Sinopoli's] Mahler cycle draws to a close in higher spirits than it began... Summer’s joyful march has an aptly homespun style... And a forward-moving finale tends, initially at least, to the matter-of-fact – an interesting alternative to any anticipated preciousness. Above all, this is a reading rich, as ever, in detail and hard to gauge in overall conception, though the Philharmonia brass and woodwind captivate the listener even when the interpretative point remains obscure.

-- David Nice, BBC Music Magazine
